Where I practice
Welcome to my Web page. I am happy to introduce myself to you and tell you about my practice. I am fortunate to work at Kaiser Permanente because of our wonderful and diverse members and physicians. I look forward to working with you to achieve health and happiness.
I was born and raised in San Francisco and attended UC Berkeley before heading to Portland, Oregon, where I attended medical school. I then moved to Denver with my wife to complete my residency at the Primary Care Internal Medicine Residency Program of the University of Colorado. My wife is a native of Long Beach. After residency, we moved back to California with our new daughter to enjoy the weather and be closer to our families. Since then our family has expanded with the addition of our son.
About my practice
The best part about being a personal physician is developing a relationship with people over time. I love learning about people's backgrounds and hearing their stories. I believe that my job as physician is to proactively help members stay healthy so they spend less time in the office with me and more time enjoying the people and activities they love.
How I thrive
I ride my bike to work four days a week, and I enjoy biking around in my free time as well. I also enjoy playing basketball and swimming. Most importantly, I enjoy the company of my wife, growing kids, and extended family and friends throughout Southern California. Maintaining a healthy work-life balance and staying physically and mentally active are what help me live well on a daily basis.
